This typology meeting aims at intensifying the contacts between
students of linguistic typology on both sides of the Alps and grew out
of a collaboration between the linguistic departments of Pavia and
Bern. Contributions cover a large variety of topics in linguistic
typology, including ideophones, the expression of motion, number
marking, adverbs, auxiliaries,  alignment and grammatical relations,
transitivity, clause combining, and competing motivations.
